Area woman to discuss work in Kenya - 2011-09-12
Keela Dates, the executive director of a Lake Placid-based not-for-profit group that supports a school and orphanage in Kenya, will talk about her work on Monday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m.
The group, Reason2Smile, aims to support orphaned and at-risk children in developing nations while helping build sustainable, revenue-generating projects in those communities. Dates' talk, "Follow Your Passion," will cover how she came to travel to Kenya and launch the organization.
Soma Beats, a dance group from Lake Placid that specializes in West African rhythms, will perform after Dates' talk.
The lecture and performance are free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the Joan Weill Adirondack Library at Paul Smith's College.
